We will have both Appointments and General Admission picking this year.
The farm is situated on 40 idyllic acres in Ortonville, Michigan. We only cultivate 5 acres, as we grow what we can hand weed. The rest is left natural and sustains a rich population of wildlife. We have acres of woods and marshland that are left untouched. Our proudest contribution to the land is 6 acres of wild pollinator preserve. We've planted native wildflower and grass species and leave it in peace for bees, butterflies and bats.
Due to the setting of the farm, we do not have WIFI or a reliable signal and are unable to accept credit card payments. CASH OR CHECK ONLY, PLEASE.
Sandhill Crane in Pollinator Preserve
We are an IPM farm focused on sustainability. Our mission is to grow food that is not just healthy for people, but also for the environment. We are not organic, but use organic practices whenever possible, including hand weeding, OMRI sprays, natural fertilizers and crop rotation. We take our responsibility to the land and the future of the planet with solemn dedication.
We are an entirely you-pick farm. We do not pre-harvest any crops for sale. Our customers get the best of everything (no seconds) and the satisfaction of harvesting their own food.
Our family purchased the farm from Barb and Bill Middleton in 2014. We are proud to continue the tradition of feeding our community and tending the land. The relationship between our families did not just end at the sale. In 2016, Carrie Janiga (co-owner) married Jason Middleton (Barb and Bill's nephew). It's a beautiful story. If you're interested in hearing it, just ask.
